How about we finish of the month with this bad boy? I know that the T-shirt slogan is offensive to most but it did happen and it happened here.
Fairfax columnist, Clementine Ford produced and sold this bit of Free Speech and the usual suspects from the not so objective, ABC & The Guardian Australia, had not a word of condemnation. Their silence is obvious support, Well fine!
As Voltaire may have said , "I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
Of course I hate it, just as I would hate an "F YOU GILLARD OR GREENS OR RUDD" T-shirt, There is nothing more telling of a person's IQ when they resort to foul language. It's just a juvenile way to make a point but in a way isn't that the point of this entire debate?
Abbott didn't curl up and die and I know that he has received worse abuse for years. The lesson to take, is again from an old adage "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me."
If such things upset you then you are truly a sensitive flower so just look away and ignore it for what it is, angry and generally uneducated people venting. The same goes with racist taunts, pity the fools and ignore the words, because that's all they are, thoughts turned into words. Remember the bullies at school, cowards that could only fight you with words. Again treat all such schoolyard behaviour with the contempt it deserves.
But we aren't in a schoolyard are we? We are suppose to be adults, setting an example of leadership to the young -- and yet the leftists can happily wear, sell and even promote such low brow public speech and then in turn have the hypocrisy to scold Abbott for wanting to enforce the very laws that will protect that very free speech, bad taste or not.
They don't get it! It's not what you say, it's being accountable for your words and actions and knowing that society will mark you up or down on what it is you say and or do. If you disagree with me then fine, debate me, change my mind if you can. That's healthy and civilised society, that's freedom. Political Correctness is what is under attack here, so well done PM, Political Correctness is the tool of the Marxist Devil and the enemy of Freedom.
Government should never be allowed to censor free opinion & speech in whatever form it takes and society should always be the final judge as to what is considered to be fair and decent as oppose to what is vile and dangerous......PERIOD!
